We're seriously hoping that massive bulge on the lid isn't going to remain (for long), but we're just happy enough that someone -- namely Asus -- is prepping to launch a SideShow laptop. Granted, it'll be first thing next year alongside the Vista release at CES (i.e. when we were all expecting SideShow laptops to be revealed) but still. Expect PortalPlayer and other hardware "gadget" (widget, damn it!) businesses to hop on the gravy train all the way to auxiliary display-town.
